Many testers want to know more about programming, but it’s difficult to know where to begin. You’ve probably heard of Java, it’s one of the most popular languages for building automation frameworks in Selenium and a great place to start your journey into writing automation code to support testing.

This is an introductory Java course for software testers that will guide you through the basics of programming in Java. We’ll take you through the features of the language, starting with the obligatory “Hello World” program. We’ll talk about variables, loops and ifs before getting into being able to create classes.

Lessons will take you through step-by-step on how to code each concept, and we’ll be showing a little of the common “gotchas” to avoid. You’ll be shown authentic, follow-along programming examples and have practical exercises to put your skills into practice.

To successfully complete this course you will need:

  • Basic knowledge of programming principles
